Caroline County Bird Club's October 2014 events

All Free and open to the public!

Saturday, October 11 -   Big Sit!  Location: Tuckahoe State Park gazebo on the Caroline County side of the lake.  This is a joint event with Tuckahoe State Park. It will run all day from dawn to dusk and perhaps into the evening for some owling. 
Every year, bird watchers from around the globe unite on this special day by participating in this free event!   
The object is to tally as many bird species as can be seen or heard within 24 hours. The only rule is that there is a 17 foot diameter area limitation from which you may observe. Any bird seen or heard from our designated area will be counted.  We will have team leaders stationed at the gazebo during the day and will have our 17 foot diameter set.  
 The Big Sit! is open to the public.  Come with binoculars and spotting scope if you have them. You might want to bring a chair as well and refreshments.
